Sowing Lathyrus sweet pea is quite easy. Here are the steps you can follow:

Choose a sunny location: Sweet pea likes full sun, so choose a spot in your garden where the plants receive at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day.

Prepare the soil: Make sure the soil is well-drained and free of weeds. You can also enrich the soil with compost or organic fertilizers to promote plant growth.

Soak the seeds of Lathyrus sweet pea in water for 24 hours before sowing them. This helps the seeds germinate faster.

Make trenches in the ground about 2-3 cm deep. Place the seeds in the trenches, spacing about 4-6 inches between each seed. Cover the seeds with soil and press the soil lightly. Water the seeds immediately after sowing so that the soil is moist. Continue watering regularly, especially during dry spells, to keep the soil moist.

Lathyrus sweet pea is a climbing plant and needs support to grow upwards. You can use mesh, stakes, a wall or some other type of support system to guide the plants.

Regularly remove weeds around the plants to reduce competition for nutrients. You can also apply mulch around the plants to retain moisture and reduce weed growth.

Lathyrus sweet pea produces beautiful flowers that you can cut and use in bouquets. Make sure you cut the flowers regularly to encourage the plants to produce more flowers.

History: The Lathyrus sweet pea, also known as the sweet pea, has a rich history dating back to ancient times. The Lathyrus sweet pea comes from the Mediterranean region and parts of Asia. It was first cultivated by the ancient Greeks and Romans, who prized the plant for its beautiful flowers and pleasant scent.

During the Middle Ages, the Lathyrus sweet pea was grown throughout Europe as a decorative plant. It was often used in monastery gardens and castle gardens because of its beauty.

During the Victorian era, which ran from 1837 to 1901, the Sweet Pea became very popular in England. It was considered a symbol of romance and was often used in floral arrangements and bouquets.

In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, breeders began experimenting with crossing different species of Lathyrus sweet pea to create new varieties. This led to a wide range of colors and shapes of the flowers.

Today, the Lathyrus sweet pea is still popular for its beautiful flowers and sweet scent. It is often grown for gardens or as a cut flower. The history of the Lathyrus sweet pea shows that it has been valued for centuries for its beauty and fragrance. It remains a popular plant in gardens around the world.

Lathyrus Odoratus was specially selected by Matthijs Hazeleger for Nelumbogarden.
